The Steinerner Saal (Stone Hall) in Nymphenburg Palace has remained unchanged since its completion in 1758.

Guided tour for groups

Nymphenburg Palace

On this tour you will visit Nymphenburg Palace, the former summer residence of the Bavarian electors and kings.

In Nymphenburg you will discover one of the most extensive, strictly symmetrical Baroque palace ensembles in Europe. You can explore the little castle Badenburg with its impressive swimming pool, the Asian-inspired Pagodenburg, the Magdalenenklause, which appears as an artificial ruin, and the hunting castle Amalienburg with its unique Hall of Mirrors - a major work of European rococo.

The centre of the castle is the "Steinerne Saal" with its cycle of frescoes framed by luxuriant rococo stuccoes. On both sides of the Stone Hall are the princely living and reception rooms.

One of the particular highlights is the gallery of beauties commissioned by King Ludwig I. Joseph Stieler painted a total of 36 women from all social classes on behalf of the king. Among them are for example the daughter of a master shoemaker, Helene Sedlmayr, and the dancer Lola Montez, the king's mistress.

Good to know: If you would like to stop for a bite to eat after the tour, you can do so in the Schlosscafé im Palmenhaus. Here you can sit in a light-flooded winter garden and enjoy coffee, cake or delicious lunch. In addition, the already mentioned palace ensemble is under monumental protection and is also a protected landscape area. There are many animals to discover, for example deer and hares, but also endangered species such as the hobby hawk and kingfisher.
